Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.

Eeither motor or servo motor with gear box is seized. Testing is done energizing the motor. Test and repair must be done by a technician. Call the number listed on the owners manual to contact a qualified repairer.

SOURCE: Hi, I've just had my Sebo X4 back from being repaired (motor was growling so Sebo replaced it FOC under warranty) however, the replacement motor is 1000 watts. I queried this with Sebo, as they c

Watt= volts x amps So what are you losing? Not much really. Should they replace it with the same motor? Possibly, but you got a free motor out of them. To be honest I think you're splitting hairs on this one. The difference in how much cleaning that sebo will do with one motor vs the other is beyond minimal. The aggressive brushes on that vacuum do 95% of the carpet cleaning and both motors will have no problem turning it at sufficient speed. As far as suction goes I'd be amazed if it was even a noticeable difference. That's an amazing vacuum you bought, I wouldn't worry about it and go on with life.


Good Luck

I started vacuuming and the vacuum motor slowed down, then stopped. I smelled a burning smell. Then I discovered the next day that the bag bottom was wet and falling apart. Sebo X4 model


sucked up liquid goes with the air through the motor
that would cause the motor to burn out
with the current low cost of new vacuums , the repair /replacement of the motor would be close to a new unit
take it to an appliance repair shop and get a proper diagnosis and quote

How do I replace the front bottom plate on my Sebo X4 Extra vacuum cleaner, this is the metal/plastic plate on the front base of the bottom of the cleaner (no visible fixings)


With the power head cover removed, you will see tabs on the inside of the chassis inline with the front bottom plate. Simply pinch the tabs with some needle nose pliers and push. I have included a link to the parts list as well as the front bottom plate. You will see by the picture what those tabs look like and how to remove the front bottom plate. 5411 HG Front Bottom Plate Windsor Sensor S12 XP12 SR12 86138280 allstar... http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

I have a sebo x4 , when I switch it on the red lights flick on and off and nothing happenes


The red lights should flash very quickly upon vacuum start-up (normal). If the motor is not turning on there is likely a problem with the motor or power supply board. The lights flashing does indicate that you are getting power to the PC control board. If your vacuum is under warranty, this would likely be covered. I have included a link to the parts list for your reference. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

My Sebo X4 does not switch on, when powered up two red lights flash momentarily. There was a buzzing from the black box underneath but that has now stopped. I changed the bag yesterday as it said it w


Your red lights flashing momentarily is normal start-up. The fact that your servo motor is operating tells you that you are getting power. If the vacuum motor does not turn on, you likely have a problem with the motor itself or the power supply board that feeds power to the motor. These items should be covered under warranty. However, if your vacuum is outside the manufacturers warranty, you can replace either of these parts fairly easily with only a phillips head screwdriver.I have included a link to the parts list for this machine. We do stock both parts. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

Sebo vac grinding noise and burnt smell


Take it to your local vac shop for assessment. Sounds like a bad motor. If they are not a Sebo dealer, make sure they know that a X1 motor is not the same as an X4 motor. It should cost around $200 for the total repair . A new X4 is $799 so the repair is usually a good idea.
